Hello , my name is ***** ***** different tech. here ;
At this point , is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?
If you turn the tv off and on again , does the screen light up briefly or even show the Samsung logo ?
How old is this tv now ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The tv is 6 months old. There is no lights that light up when I turn it on. It's black. But I can hear the volume
Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.
OK then this is definitely not normal so before doing anything else , try this ;
Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.
Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.
If that does not do it then we may be looking at internal problems with the tv.
PS although I do not have the TV's model number right now , the newer models do not have a full set of buttons directly on the tv but a single button at the rear lower left side that you can use as power button , if you can`t find it then just leave the tv unplugged a minute more.
let me know how that goes.

Ok. That did nothing. Yes it has no bottons on the tv.
Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.
OK then as I said , I did not expect much out of this but it had to be tried .
At this point if the tv is only 6 months old , there is no use to talk about parts and cost of repair but to contact Samsung for a warranty repair.
Have your info in hand and call them at 1-800-SAMSUNG to claim the warranty.
For a tv of this size , this will be a "in-home" service and they will arrange for one of their local ASC to come around .
Wish i had better news and an easier solution for you today but I hope this help and I will be in standby if you have any questions.
